Overcoming Age Discrimination

Free for monthly or annual members. https://greatcareers.org/membership

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

Age discrimination is described as “treating an applicant or employee less favorably because of his or her age. The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) forbids age discrimination against people who are age 40 or older.”

So, it’s illegal to not offer a job because of age, but we all know that it happens. But the reality is that it’s still possible and likely that you will find an opportunity based on the great knowledge and experience gained throughout your career—it just might take a little longer.
This talk will focus on helping you minimize the chance that age will be an issue, how to identify when the hidden objection of age comes up, and how to handle it, including:

  • Identifying when your age may be an issue
  • How the “TRUST Success Model” can help you overcome any challenges
  • How to position yourself as the right person for the job
  • What to do to take age out of the equation
  • What to include… and not include… in your marketing materials and interview answers

This talk will help you see how your experience is an advantage and how you can present yourself effectively to avoid age discrimination.
